Our branch of the Cavalletto family immigrated to America a century ago from Vesignano, Italy.
Traces of this immigration are visible in the Ellis Island records for Cavalletto, Cavaletto, and Cavallette.
Our branch of the family settled in Goleta, California, and the Santa Barbara area, appearing in increasing numbers in the 1910 and 1920 census records.
The Santa Barbara County Genealogical Society collected information from several sources (including this website) as part of their “Santa Barbara’s Italian Immigrants” project. Their “Cavaletto / Cavalletto” page includes some information on other members of the family that settled in and around Santa Barbara, along with some photographs and historical documents.
